Ohio Department of Health reports state's first pediatric flu death of season

Up until December 30, 2017, there were 11,275 laboratory-confirmed cases across the country, 74 per cent of which are attributed to influenza A. There have been a total of 1,050 influenza-related hospitalizations and 34 deaths across the country. There have been 3,854 total flu-associated hospitalizations in OH since flu season began last October.

"Pair these factors with an early start to the season, and we've got ourselves a bad year of influenza", Scherzer said.

A toddler in Lucas County has died from complications of the flu this week, becoming the second child to die from pediatric flu this season.

"Emergency department visits for influenza-like symptoms looks like about a week ahead of where we were past year", Modie said.

H3N2 has been responsible for some of the worst flu seasons in the US in recent years, including the 2006-2007, 2012-2013, and 2014-2015 bouts.

"Flu is hard to predict", said ODH Medical Director Dr. Clint Koenig, in a statement.

"If you already have the flu we'd advise people to follow the message "Catch It, Bin It, Kill It".

Healthy lifestyle habits can also protect you from seasonal illness. He believes that the best thing that people can do to prevent the flu is get vaccinated.

At the end of its flu season in mid-August, Australia had more than 93,000 laboratory-confirmed cases - nearly 2.5 times the number of infections and double the number of hospitalizations and deaths compared to the previous year. She says free vaccines are available at the Health Department on W. Central, as supplies last.

Flagstaff primary care provider Northwoods Medical Associates has been overwhelmed with flu cases, said Kim McCasland, the practice's administrator.

A study in Australia found the current flu vaccine was only 10 percent effective against one particular flu strain, known as Influenza A, H3N2. There are no flu vaccine shortages across Ohio.

When medical personnel give the flu vaccine to a patient, they inform them that they may feel soreness in their arm or general body aches and even a low-grade fever in response to it.

He added that both children and pregnant women are among those at higher risk due to the flu, as are people over the age of 63. "However, if the next person that walks in is sicker than you, they will go first".
